Call of Duty - Modern Warfare

Recommended Posts

On PlayStation, you can party up with either Activision friend or PSN friends. Assume the situation is similar elsewhere.

I'm bradigor1981 on Activision if anyone fancies carrying Private Pyle here.

I'm so pleased that on PC I only have to download 15 gigs this patch, it's much better than re-downloading 150 gigs that are already sitting on your hard drive. Plus during the last patch, having to manually restart the download every 10 minutes kept things interesting, and interactive, it was a nice touch.

 

The slight drawback this patch is that it's only downloading at 70kbps, which I suppose is pretty good because in the old days we used to have to download at 56k, and this is very slightly faster than that!

 

Overall, I'd describe this as an excellent service.

One thing that I have noticed recently is that due to a lot of people now playing warfare there are more pc players in the multiplayer games. It’s getting a little tiresome to be honest, you have little chance of even reacting to them being on screen let alone shooting them before you die yet again.

So why don't you just turn crossplay off...

I played domination last night for the first time in two weeks as I've been playing Warfare exclusively. What an utter laggy mess it was. People ice skating around the map. Felt like 2001 playing CS on a dial up. :(

 

PS4 fact fans.

I play it on my Xbox with friends who have it on the PS4. It works fine with console players.

Cross play is normally fine but I've noticed a few mouse pc players which IW are adamant shouldn't happen but here we are. It's only going to get worse as well as time goes on.

Ah ok, I've never used it at all. I thought they'd be a way to pick and choose the platforms.

Not as far as I can see. I’m not ruling out the possibility that I’ve missed something really obvious though.

My usual nightly routine, as generally a free-for-all player goes something like this...

 

Into the lobby, map chosen...

 

Hackney Yard > QUIT

Gun Runner > QUIT

Hackney Yard > QUIT

Rust > QUIT

Hackney Yard > QUIT

Shoot House > QUIT

Hackney Yard > QUIT

Gun Runner > QUIT

Superstore > QUIT

Gun Runner > QUIT

Hackney Yard > QUIT

Shoot House > QUIT

Anything else > FINALLY A GOOD MAP

 

Does seem to love the shit ones in rotation.

I enjoy Gun Runner, Rust and Shoot House. Hackney Yard and Superstore can GTFO for me too. o/

 

How are people enjoying the new S3 maps?

Yeah it is annoying that they don't do a map vote or let you choose a selection of your own to rotate around

Find it odd you can do 'quick play', but not any sort of normal play. Like, what's the non-quick variety? There isn't one!

And then you have the playlists, where everything is a weird mode you would never want to play, or a 'mosh pit', which sounds totally metal but doesn't signify much (what does it mean anyway? 'we have excluded the modes everyone hates'?)

There is, allegedly, a RLLMUK regiment but I'm not sure how many people are in it or who can invite.

Rust is the only map I don't like. I'll play any of the maps because not playing Shipment or whatever Nuketown equivalent twice in a row because of map voting is a novelty still.

 

I don't get the gate for Hackney Yard. I guess it depends what mode you're playing?

I hate rust, don't like the 3 new maps particularly and warzone was a laggy shit show last night. I really enjoy it on the whole but sometimes they make it pretty hard work. 

 

The mandatory 30 minutes to an hour everytime u get your buddies on for a game and they have to download a patch, then do their shaders is pretty trying. Add to that a couple of games of unplayable rubber banding and everyone just gives up. Sadface

Hackney Yard in FFA has its spawn points all wrong. Shoot someone, and then pretty much instantly get shot by the person you've just done, in the back.

 

I tried Warzone for the first time the other night. I'm too old to get the point of these Battle Royale type games.

 

BR modes seem designed for low attention span types. I waited in a lobby for a few minutes, then a cut scene started and I jumped out of a plane. As I came into land I was shot dead. Re-spawned in a jail and was shot dead again. Not a lot of gaming going on there in the 10 or so minutes I spent getting into a game, seems pointless! I didn't try again.

It shouldn't take ten minutes to get into a game. You playing on console or pc? If you've not played BR before it's a complete dick, but if you get your head round it it's tense as shit and very rewarding. But if you can't be arsed getting over that hump of BANG DEAD and starting again I absolutely get that.

I hate solos in BR games, buddying up its a different animal. try 4 squad, and if you have 3 friends then it'll all click.

Tried MP for the first time (on this version) today. Got my arse handed to me on multiple occasions. Didn't help my son kept trying to point out where enemies were and my daughter was getting louder and louder, so couldn't hear anything. 

Was fun though.

I think I found a bug with the battle pass.

 

So I chose to unlock the the first free tier because I had tiny amount of cp. I don’t really know what happened but the game just unlocked the first 10 tiers for nothing, so then I got the bundle and it’s dropped me midway through tier 30

 

I haven’t played a single round of season 3 yet.

I got my first warzone win today in solos, I took it steady, and moved in with the gas. I was mainly picking people off who were in a worse position than I was, where I knew they'd have to move and had no cover. I ended up in the final circle at the military base with two others, the first one should have had me, he was in cover and I wasn't, but I've been using the M13 with a load of recoil reduction and I just chipped away at him. I think people panic when they see the amount of hits coming in, even though the M13 isn't doing a huge amount of damage compared to some of the other rifles, it's a total laser beam. I saw the last guy in the distance and realised that his only cover was the caltrop type things on the runway. I got behind one of the mini bunkers and just kept firing. I don't think he had any idea what to do, because no matter where he stood I could hit him in the feet. He moved a couple of times but I could still hit him and think he knew the game was up, because he didn't really fire back. I also had 5 RPG rounds in reserve for vehicles, but didn't need to use them in the end.

 

In other news I've had three matches today with blatant hackers, not even trying to hide it. I've sent in more reports in the last week than I have since the game started, and I just hope they can get a handle on this. Ghosts was a complete write off because of hackers, the report function literally didn't do anything, and I hope this doesn't go the same way

:lol: this is exactly the opposite of what BR is for.

 

BR is unlike the normal multiplayer in that your life actually means something, which makes it tense as fuck near the end.

So, because I didn't get my 10 tier skip (didnt need it, I was 100 weeks ago) got a thing today telling me to claim my missing 10 tier skip.

 

Went from 28 to 43, pretty sure that isn't 10, but i will take it, cheers, a wee baw hair off 45 now.

Weird complaint but it’s kinda shady how some of the premium store stuff like Talon’s dog and the Tamagunchi, are basically part of the battle pass (skin swaps) in the space of a few weeks. Imagine how miffed you’d feel if you’d spent hard cash on those bundles.
